Farewell to Patrick Swayze

In the 1990s. i watched the movie - Ghost - 3 times.

It was a very good movie - starring Patrick Swayze, Demi Moore and Whoopi Goldberg.

In that movie, Patrick Swayze played the role of a ghost named Sam, protecting his wife, Demi Moore with the assistance of Whoopi - a physcic with 6th sense..

The movie was nominated for multiple Academy Awards, including Best Picture, winning for Best Original Screenplay, as well as Best Supporting Actress for Whoopi Goldberg.

The film also made an oldies song popular - Unchained Melody sung by the Righteous Brothers.

It has also inspired a musical stage version which will open in the West End in 2010.

Sadly, Patrick Swayze, died Monday 15 Sept 2009, after a battle with pancreatic cancer. He was 57.

"Patrick Swayze passed away peacefully today with family at his side after facing the challenges of his illness for the last 20 months," his publicist, Annett Wolf, said in a statement Monday evening. Swayze died in Los Angeles, Wolf said, but she declined to give further details.

Fans of the actor were saddened to learn in March 2008 that Swayze was suffering from a particularly deadly form of cancer. He kept working despite the diagnosis, putting together a memoir with his wife and shooting "The Beast," an A&E drama series for which he had already made the pilot.

Farewell sir, you will always be on our mind...

And this song is for you..
